Good-Bye, Nemo!

People keep trying to reassure me and calm me down, but I'm still chagrined that the incredible steampunk city Nemo, created by the amazing Sextan Shepherd, will close its doors on October 29th, in just a couple days. I've been busy shooting some machinima of this fabulous place—truly one of the gems of virtual worlds—and will post that on Vimeo, but it's not much compensation. Sextan assures me that he's planning to build something even more remarkable, so I'll try to be an optimist! (Could I include any more superlatives?) In the meantime, RUN to Nemo and enjoy it before it's gone! http://slurl.com/secondlife/FRANCE3D%20Futuna/89/148/21


  1. Ziki...when I was very new a wonderful place I had found suddenly disappeared... I was new enough that I'm not sure I still have pictures...
    I know now that it never occurred to me then that places cost money.

    Reading Cubey Terra's "Oldbie" recent post...
    I recently restarted one of my sims and as it winked out, I deeply understood just how ephemeral our experience is here.

  2. How true Brinda! In this case it's not about money, as Sextan has in mind to build something new on the same location, so we'll have to keep our fingers crossed. Sad it see it go, though. :)
